“Become nourished by what is
the most liberating and enduring sustenance of all:
the art that is drawn from the magic of the quotidian.”
—Flat Lake Festival
“The pen is mightier than the sword,
and considerably easier to write with.”
Hi, I’m Vanessa Query. I am a writer, director, and performer.
I have written and directed several plays and short films, and have performed comedy, circus sideshow, and spoken word. My work has been performed, screened, and shown around the United States and in Ireland.
I hold a BA in Theater from Antioch College and have trained in circus sideshow and stunt work (Coney Island, Harley Newman), improv comedy (Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre), and melodrama and commedia dell’arte (San Francisco Mime Troupe).
I was born and bred in Rhode Island, currently live in Western Mass, and have second homes in Yellow Springs, Ohio and Clones, County Monaghan, Ireland.
I am also a graphic and web designer, organizer and promoter. Learn more about my work for others at Query Media.
